Cocodrills Name the Best Grub, Music, Pick-up Lines, and More in Miami

Cocodrills' Adam Cruz and Christian "Pridef" Diaz.
After years of being knee-deep in the grime of Miami's nightlife and music scene, Cocodrills have become experts on the city's best music spots, the best places for a meal, and the best summer drinks.

Before catching the duo tonight at the Electric Pickle for their monthly Tech-Support party with opener Jared Esdale, Crossfade linked up with DJ-producers Adam Cruz and Christian "Pridef" Diaz (as Pridef sipped on a Mango Bellini) to find out what they consider the best of the best in this town of booze, babes, and beats.

Venue
Pridef: I call it church. Others know it as the Electric Pickle.
Adam: While a couple of cool spots have sprouted up recently, without question it has to be the Electric Pickle. They've got quality bookings on a weekly basis.

Summer Track
Pridef: Jamie Jones, Hot Natured, and Lee Foss's "Forward Motion," featuring Ali Love.
Adam: That's like asking a mother to pick her favorite child. But I guess if you put a gun to my head, I'd go with Danny Daze's "Your Everything." Infectious.

Afterparty Spot
Pridef: An exclusive club in a mansion in an undisclosed location in Miami Beach. Check in on Sunday. Walk home Tuesday!
Adam: Anywhere with some good music, lots of booze, and chicks that are DTF! The rippin' and the tearin'! The rippin' and the tearin'!

Party of the Summer
Pridef: Bart Cruz and Kate Simko at Mandala Terrace.
Adam: I was definitely going apeshit during Guti's set at the Electric Pickle.

Place to Pick Up Girls
Pridef: Carpaccio at Bal Harbour Shops, 6 p.m. Yup, we're there. I love me some gold diggaz!
Adam: There are some great bargains on Biscayne Boulevard.

Pick-up Line Pridef: "You know, I live a Magnum Lifestyle."
Adam: "Nice legs, what time do they open?" A 100-percent success rate. And by "success," I mean getting a drink thrown in your face.
Cuisine
Pridef: Mr. Chow's fire noodles while he karate chops at your dinner table.
Adam: I'm a picky little bitch when it comes to food because I don't consume meat or poultry. It's always a mission for me to find something to eat. But I am a sushi junkie, so you can catch me stuffing my face at Moshi Moshi on a regular basis.

Summer Drink
Pridef: Mango Bellini (champagne and mango juice) with crushed ice. Rosé? Even better.
Adam: I'm strictly about a whiskey on the rocks. But if you want to get all girly on me, then bring me a strawberry mojito.

Late-Night Munchies
Pridef: Los Perros' chicken hot dog with bacon. Best way to clog a toilet.
Adam: I fucking love pizza! Any pizza. I don't give a shit. I live close to Gino's on Alton Road which is open 24 hours. So after a few bong rips, I usually walk over there and grab two slices.

Clothing Store
Pridef: BASE boutique on Lincoln Road. You want a scoop shirt? They got it. You want a Kidrobot dildo? Sure, they got that too.
Adam: Atrium on South Beach always keeps me looking funky fresh. Yo, for realz. Werd.

Local Record Label
Pridef: Mr. Nice Guy ... Jesse Perez "Sally Said Woah!"
Adam: Got to love what Jesse Perez is doing with his label ... Mr. Nice Guy. Candela!

Quote
Pridef: "La humildad es la grandeza." Translation: "Stay humble." Adam: "What is it about a beautiful sunny afternoon, with the birds singing and the wind rustling through the leaves, that makes you want to get drunk?" - Jack Handy

I've worked with a lot of DJs over the years and I can honestly say when it comes to Cocodrills. They have a special place in my heart. I've seen beyond the spot light and what you see is what you get. there is no sugar coating with Cocodrills. they are very selective of where they spin and always keeping true to there sound and what fans expect from them. there is no short cuts for these 2. they work hard. Bravo boys! Its a Honor to work with u two.

Cocodrills, They Eat,Sleep, And Sh*t The Miami Life. there could not be a better choice for this article.

"Chicks that are DTF!" ... "You know, I live a Magnum Lifestyle." ... These guys sound like textbook Miami douchebags. Not the kind of element we want representing Miami's alternative dance music scene.

Have a bless day!

The Cocodrills are who should be representing the Miami dance and music scene (if you know anything about good music). They are both very talented artists and good guys. So what if they like to party and chicks that are DTF, they are men!!! Maybe if you catch one of their shows and see what all the hype is about before you trash them based on what they say in an article.
